I.E. I am now sick. Baby ran a fever last Monday, had Hand, Foot, and Mouth by Thursday. Ash took her some of the time and I did the rest but now, I am done for. The funny part is that I felt fine Saturday. I guess looking back I felt a little run down but with our life, there is no time for that. We got up and ate and got to the flag field by about 9:15. Isaac had his game – they lost terribly – and then right after, Elliot had his game, which they lost terribly. Their teams are not used to that so it was quite a blow. About an hour after that, we had some friends over to watch the game. My food turned out well; I spent a good bit of time last week coming up with the perfect hot food item and settled on buying Aidell’s teriyaki pineapple meatballs from Costco then I mixed one jar of Heinz chili sauce with about 14 ounces of grape jelly then threw it in the crockpot on low for 2.5 hours with the meatballs. They were so good that my children ate them for dinner too! Soon after dinner was when I realized I was probably sick.
And I knew it for sure Sunday. I woke feeling like total battered crap. I managed to schlep myself to the store because we needed a bunch of stuff and of course, some kind of cold medicine, which I took as soon as I got home then crawled into bed. When I awoke, I still felt bad but and the day went on, I was able to do a few things. But of course, nighttime is always worse. I feel slightly better today but I had to be at work, at least until my doctor’s appointment later. It’s funny; I made this appointment weeks ago because I’m out of refills on an Rx and sometimes they make you come in for stuff like that. I thought it would be good so I could ask her about this itching I have on one of my hands. Then I had that stomach issue to add on and now, this sickness! I am falling apart! There is a reason why 35 is such a milestone age.
I have to teach this morning and I had a dream I wasn’t prepared. Well, I’m actually not. They are going to utilize that time to keep researching and writing their annotated bibliography. I am also going to show them a video fro, Homestar Runner because in my dream, that is what I did. It has no bearing on anything for class but it’ll be fun.
This is one of the new songs I have found and really like. So good.
And this one is in honor of how I feel right now:
